Luke Humphries - 1/1

Luke Humphries claimed his first Major title at the World Grand Prix in October and the new kid on the block looks a lively contender at the Players Championship Finals after capturing a second major televised title at the weekend in the Grand Slam.

A semi-finalist last year, Humphries will have high hopes of going at least one place better than 2022 as he looks ahead to his semi-final showdown with Ryan Joyce on Sunday night.

Cool Hand Luke - the 1/1 favourite - got his campaign underway with a 6-4 success over Martin Lukeman and has followed that up with a 6-0 whitewash of Radaz Szaganski, a 10-7 triumph over best friend Ryan Searle and a 10-7 success over James Wade in his quarter-final.

There's no doubt about it, the in-form Grand Prix and Grand Slam champion remains the one to beat.

Michael van Gerwen - 5/4

A stop-start campaign meant Michael van Gerwen was seeded as low as 40th for this tournament, but his phenomenal Players Championship Finals record means write him off at your peril.

This competition has only been in existence since 2009 yet Van Gerwen has won it on seven occasions, including at this venue last year. 

In fact, the Dutchman has made the final in eight of the last 10 years, only failing to do so in 2014 and 2021, which shows how dominant he has been in this event - and he remains on course to extend that run yet further on finals day.

MVG produced a sensational comeback to beat Stephen Bunting in the last eight and set-up a semi-final date with Gabriel Clemens.

The other contenders...

German star Clemens must carry some appeal at 9/1 given the impressive form he has shown throughout the weekend, whilst  Luke Woodhouse will be quietly fancying his chances at 14/1 as he looks to end Humphries' remarkable winning run.
